Hola guapas!

For our new spring collection, we’ve taken the girls to the beautiful Mediterranean city of Barcelona. What an incredible shoot to match an incredible city! We found so many wonderful nooks that we just had to share them with you. So, we’ve put together a practical little guide to Barcelona’s top 11 hotspots…just for you! Discover where and what to eat, where to shop, what tourist attractions to visit and how to party like a local. Come on, we’ll take you there (well, kind of!)

Discover our new March spring collection.

Where to Eat

There are countless amazing cafes and restaurants to discover in Barcelona. We promise you won’t go hungry!

Cervecería Catalana

If you’re a foodie like us, then the first thing that comes to mind when talking about Spain are Tapas. This popular restaurant, located close to the Museu Egipci de Barcelona, boasts serving the best Tapas in Barcelona, and we can’t disagree with them on that! It’s a prefect place to soak up some morning sun with a coffee and croissant, or relish in an extensive Tapas menu for lunch or dinner. Always full of young people from all over the world, it’s also a great place to make new friends!

Isabella’s

Although we know you didn’t come to Barcelona to eat Italian food, we picked this restaurant for its amazing vintage decoration. Located in a residential area close to Les Tres Torres Metro, it has a great ambiance. Relax on their romantic, little terrace, as you enjoy the Barcelona sun. While their menu isn’t very long, their thin-crust pizza is to die for! We can’t get enough!

Parco

If you love sushi, then Parco is the place to eat! Located close to Diagonal Metro, it serves the best sushi in Barcelona. The hot sushi are a MUST TRY! The only hic – it’s a tad on the expensive side. That said, a night out at a chic restaurant is the perfect excuse to dress up! Add a bit of bling to your look with beautiful jewellery.

Where to Shop

Paseo de Gràcia

Put on your sun hat and breathe in some fresh Mediterranean air, as you walk down il Paseo de Gràcia, a long street filled with shops on either side of it. You can literally shop until you drop! Here, you can find both international brands, including H&M and Other Stories, as well as local ones, including El Ganso, Bimba y Lola and Etxart & Panno.

Boulevard Rosa

If it’s exclusive fashion brands and more foodie experiences you’re after, then the Boulevard Rosa is where you want to go. Don’t forget to pick up a few tasty souvenirs from the wide selection of delicious Spanish jams and cheeses!

With so many shops to visit, you’re going to need a good handbag for all your essentials. Have a look through our topselling bags to find your perfect fit.

What to Visit

La Sagrada Familia

You don’t want to go to Barcelona and miss world-famous architect Antoni Gaudí’s emblematic Basilica. The beauty of it will astound you…plus, it’s a great place to snap a selfie!

Barrio Gótico & El Mercat de la Boqueria

Take a relaxing stroll through the Barrio Gótico, Barcelona’s oldest town. Discover the little streets around the cathedral and some of the oldest antique dealers. Don’t miss El Mercat de la Boqueria, one of La Rambla’s most fascinating buildings and home to Barcelona’s big food market, serving local specialties. There, you will not only find a rich selection of locally grown fruit and vegetables but also fresh fish, Spanish sausages and even colourful sweets. Enjoy an array of different, mouth-watering dishes, as you walk from stand to stand.

Parc Güell

If you’re looking for amazing views over the city, then Parc Güell is where you need to head. A big park at the top of the city, which is surrounded by mountains, it boasts the most beautiful panoramic views of Barcelona. It’s also another amazing place to marvel at more of Gaudí’s beautiful designs.

Here’s a bit of friendly advice: With all the beautiful sightseeing to do in Barcelona, you’re going to want to wear flat shoes. Save your courts and high heels for the evening, and opt for a girly pair of flat sandals for your day tours.

Where to Go Out

Opium:

This popular restaurant transforms itself into a huge post-dinner club. Opium is best known for playing electronic music and organising private gigs, not to mention hosting international celebrities, such as David Guetta. People from around the world come here, and the real mix of styles means you’re sure to have a good time!

With the spring evenings getting longer, it’s time to bring out the bright dresses and sexy sandals for a night out on the town.

RazzMatazz:

One of Barcelona’s biggest clubs, with more than 5 different rooms, each playing a range of different music styles. Its agenda is always overflowing with concerts, alternative DJ sessions and famous international groups. So, you’re sure to find something to your liking!

Otto Zutz:

An even bigger club than RazzMatazz, Otto Zutz is divided into 3 floors, each playing three different music styles: R&B, 80s and Disco. Originally a textile factory, this club sweeps us back to the underground New York music scene. We simply love it!

Have a great time in sunny Barcelona!
